College football turns 150: All-Time All-America team features the game's greatest ever

https://www.cbssports.com/college-football/news/college-football-turns-150-all-time-all-america-team-features-the-games-greatest-ever/amp/?fbclid=IwAR0jB2Ck_0h_k838ibvFm_4gvt90gdBxbtQUG_jsR5_usUkg0b0XCzJv9zo


CBS Sports All-Time All-America First Team

Quarterback -- Tommie Frazier (Nebraska, 1992-95): Frazier was best appreciated as time went on. He wasn't the best thrower. He went undrafted after leading Nebraska to consecutive national championships.But his signature play endures -- a 75-yard twisting, turning, tackle-breaking touchdown run against Florida in 1996 Fiesta Bowl.

Running backs -- Herschel Walker (Georgia 1980-82), Barry Sanders (Oklahoma State, 1986-88): Walker was a once-in-a-generation who looked like he could play professionally as a freshman. A three-time All-American, Walker is still the only player to finish in the top three of the Heisman three consecutive years. Sanders was always aloof. He had to be coaxed to a TV interview after winning the Heisman while in Tokyo for a game. But his stop-on-a-dime style may never be surpassed.

If we grant the two best RBs are as noted, it is rather amazing to me the were so close together.

Have to go to Fort Lauderdale next week for work. I would think Miami or Fort Lauderdale would be fun spots, but less so the third week of August...

My last job I traveled a lot, which was among the reasons I was happy to leave it. I've had to travel a bit more in the last couple of months, and it's reminding me why I didn't like it.

They just listed those two, nobody else.  Obviously a lot of running backs should be mentioned.

Nah, they just picked a standard "1st team AA" sort of thing.  1 QB, 2 RBs, TE, WR, 5 OL, and similar for defense.

This is an example of a list I dislike.  It's click bait.  To read someone's OPINION.

In my opinion that's stupid.

If ELA contrived an all time list of whatever, I'd be interested.  If some wonk at CBS does it, I'm not.

The first thing on my list of things I hate are lists.
